Everyone loves a goblin, right? Mysterious little guys who capture your imagination and pop up in all the right stories. Not a lot of people know that they also can assist you with your slot game winnings. Booming Games have created Little Goblins, a cute cartoon-like game that lets these critters give a little back, to you that is.
Presented over the standard 5x3 setup with a meagre 10 paylines, this game set against a glum looking woodland plays on a faux wooden frame, accompanied by a lively folk-style soundtrack to lull you into a false sense of safety – a perfect state in which to get you to gamble. And gamble you should, as this game will pay when the conditions are right.
The look and feel of the game
The game has a childish feel to it, but don’t let that put you off. The reels sport some typical goblin-related icons, such as a red fire-breathing dragon, a horned fellow and a grey-haired creature that fits no specific description whatsoever. Lower value icons consist of the typical playing card set, ranging from 9 to Ace.
The wild comes in the form of a brown coloured creature with a wide grin and creepy red eyes, substituting for all other symbols to form wins, except the scatter. The scatter is a green fellow with a yellow set of teeth. This guy is one to watch as he is your ticket to getting into the main feature of the game.
The bonus features to mention
Land three or more of our green friend to trigger the free spins feature. You’ll get given ten free spins and the chance the retrigger should you get three more scatters. You will also be asked to stop the pages of a book turning to choose your random expending wild, this will happen once at the beginning of the feature.
Always a temptation, but ever dangerous. The gamble feature can be activated after every win on the base game to either double your winnings or lose them all. Hit the green ‘gamble’ button to set it going, with the choice between an eye or a hand from a chap with horns, also green.
As slots go Little Goblins is not so bad, it does what it is supposed to do, keeping you entertained and happy for a short period of time. Graphics are a love or hate scenario, we hated them, you might not. The free spins are what should be interesting you, as with these you can have a good deal of fun and take home some tidy wins too.
